I must be a bit of a freak but I massively prefer normal bg's.
Time. At 90 the que is always under one minute. You can be
waiting around for an hour trying to get an RBG group together.
Can't use cool stuff. Just entered an RBG for the first time in months.
I was just shocked at the amount of stuff you can't use. Timewarp-no.
Salynn battle banner (best item for mages ever)-no. Rocket boots
-no. Eye of insanity-no. Terracotta fragment-no. etc etc.
Those items are a major source of fun in bg's for me. They also allow
you to virtually twink the max bracket. It just felt really boring without
Bitchiness-oddly, RBG's are more like LFR. In normal BG's you usually
get one or two people complaining about the rest of the team (even
though they have mysteriously low dps themselves. Easy to ignore.
The team I just played with actually quit about 2 mins into the game,
like it was a raid that wiped. Then two guys tried to split up the 10-man
team so they could lose twice as fast or something. Even in warcraft
I've never seen organizational chaos like that.
Lack of creativity: good RBG teams seem to be run on fascist dictatorshio
lines where everyone has a clear role. Sometimes I just want to do random
shit. For example, I've broken entire horde defensives by kiting the alterac
yeti into them at Balinda, but if you were to try that in an RBG you'd
probably get kicked when they saw you going off map.
Arena at the moment is kind of interesting with some matchups, but as a
mage I find it almost completely impossible to take down good healers. It seems
to be the way to win arena at the moment is roll a priest, hump a pillar
and wait for your opponent to die of boredom. This is always a problem with
play between experts in whatever game, they tend to end up using the same
strategies and it all becomes predictable.
Despite all this, I continually get hassled in normal bg's with people saying
"Why don't you have a rating blah blah blah your nuts I'm great more blah".
The simple answer is because I don't want to.
But, maybe I'm missing something. Obviously I would probably have better
experiences with the perfect PVP guild, but that seems fairly elusive. Any
What do you guys get out RBG/arena?
